Fabulous Dahling! SSD #152

This is my last guest post for Skipping Stones Design.  I can't believe how quickly the month has flown by!

This week's retro sketch was designed by Jen Del Muro, and I'm using Birthday Purses again, I just love this set!

Most of the papers I'm using are from Simon Says Stamp's August card kit, which includes a lot of My Mind's Eye Indie Chic.

The focus here is really on that great purse.  I stamped it on that chevron pattern which I used as a base for my piecing.  Then I stamped it twice on black cardstock, once for the sides/top/bottom of the purse and the second time for the straps.  I also stamped on the pink pattern for the bow.

Besides the piecing on the purse this card came together very quickly. 

I want to thank Heather and Katie for giving me the opportunity to guest design this month.  I had a blast, and was especially excited when I saw that the other guest designer for the month was my buddy JJ

Please head over to Skipping Stones Design and play along this week!
